Condo was nice, but no a/c made for a miserable vacation. We were at each others throats all the time due to how hot we were. Master bath faucet leaks, master bedroom alarm clock doesnt work, master bedroom chest of drawers smelled horrible, master bedroom TV sound turns off after 2 seconds, roaches, ants, no left over condiments in kitchen,...

I am so sorry your recent stay here was not perfect. Admittedly, this has been our hottest summer ever, and we hope that we get our trade winds back soon. Should your travels bring you this way again, please do contact me for assistance in setting up your reservation. I will do my best to ensure that you have a... More

Our family (almost 30 people) stayed at Kiahuna last week and had a lovely time! Some of the family also stayed there back in 2007 and my immediate family stayed there in 1989! We enjoyed our unit (# 35) which had a great location and was well appointed. Great balcony with a view of the ocean was a nice place... More

We have stayed on almost all islands and in many resorts. Of all of them, 186 Kiahuna Plantation is the finest. Forty steps from the beach; uninterrupted 250 degree view of the beach, point, ocean, swathe of grass, and tall palms. There is sun AND shade, depending on preference on the lanai at all times of the year. A corner... More

There is no air conditioning. in any unit. it was a million degrees the week we were there and it was a huge bummer. apparently this was unusually hot, but be warned, no air conditioning. the waves at the beach were too rough for our 2 year old son so we had to drive to baby beach 5 minutes away...

Yes, it has indeed been the hottest summer on record here on Kauai. With the exception of a few fairly new resort condo projects, we all lack air conditioning as our tropical breezes are the best! However, at this time of year if they do not blow, it can get quite hot. Hopefully you can return in the spring or... More

People were friendly. The location has always been very comfortable and well maintained. We first started visiting the Kiahuna Plantation (formerly Kiahuna Beach and Tennis Club) two major hurricanes ago. The beach is one of the best on the islands.

What a fantastic place to stay if you are on Kauai! Last year we were in an Outrigger in Kapa'a , but this has much more charme. The condo is spacious, very good equiped, good beds and we have a great view partial of the ocean. We love the beautifull gardens that are nicely maintenanced. We will definitely come back... More

The Kiahuna Plantation has potential. We reserved 6 months ahead-ended up by the back highway (about 2 blocks from the ocean), 3rd floor (no elevator), no air conditioning (no tradewinds-hotter in the room than outside-sleeping was hard). Our unit was very nicely decorated. The pool isn't onsite, so we had to cross the highway and walk about 2 blocks. The... More

Dear L S, Thank you for your detailed review. We are sorry that felt disappointed. Situated on 30 acres, Kiahuna Plantation Resort is very spread out. What may be close to one unit, may be a hike for another. Summer and early Fall tend to be hotter and the surf is higher. Late Fall to early Summer brings trade winds... More

Our unit was very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful, and though it was quite a walk to the beach, we enjoyed the gardens. Just a note- only first day of coffee is provided, and the hotel-sized toiletries did not last 3 adults until the end of the week. The staff was friendly, and the location was great.

We stayed in a unit that had an ocean view and went through VBRO and Castle resorts. Our family loved the convenience of walking right to the beach and being able to borrow chairs and towels. This place is clean, the grounds are extremely well-maintained and we loved our unit. I would recommend this place and hope to be back!

I've stayed here previously, and I am happy with my most recent visit. The price is very reasonable, and I am surprised at some of the bad reviews. You really can't expect to come to Kauai and get a cheap room with all the luxuries! If luxury is what you need, you should be ready to pay more. This is... More
